GTK+-2.1.5 release [please test]

GTK+-2.1.5 is now available for download at:

This is the final prerelease before GTK+-2.2. The major 
change as compared to the stable GTK+-2.0.6 is support for
multiple displays and multiple screens in GDK, although there are
numerous minor changes as well.

Changes since GTK+-2.1.3 are mostly bug fixes. Among
other things the GtkFileSel widget should work better with 
non-ASCII filenames than it has in previous GTK+-2.x 


 * This is still a development release. Please try it out.
   Please don't use it in production.

 * Installing this version will overwrite your existing
   copy of GTK+-2.0. If you have problems, you'll need
   to reinstall GTK+-2.0.9.

 * GTK+-2.2 will be source and binary compatible with
   the GTK+-2.0.x series.

 * You'll need at least Pango-1.1.2 or Pango-1.0.5 for correct

 * GTK+ looks for theme engines in a version dependent  directory, 
   so you'll need to reinstall any theme engines you want to use.

 * Bugs should be reported to
What is GTK+

GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application

GTK+ has been designed from the ground up to support a range of
languages, not only C/C++. Using GTK+ from languages such as Perl and
Python (especially in combination with the Glade GUI builder) provides
an effective method of rapid application development.

GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the
licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all
pdevelopers, including those developing proprietary software, without
any license fees or royalties.
